I just look at this little puppy in admiration. It is a wonderful instrument, and it lives in my pencil case.
I am wondering if the numerals are from a specific typeface, because I love them equally as much as my ruler!

golly, you chaps are rather quick!

Maybe so, but upon very close inspection they aren't semi-circular rounds, but more like truncated curves. But thanks anway people!

Check this thread for 'industrial drawing'-type numerals. ;)

Nice cross-ref, Yves.

Helvetica Rounded Bold Condensed's numerals are the same flavor.

And don't forget about VAG Rounded.

Great numerals in Concerto Rounded, both Lining and Oldstyle.

Mattias Jakobsson designed a DIN Rounded with wonderful
numerals, but it was bought by Albert Jan Pool, creator of
FF DIN. Hopefully we'll see it in FF's collection soon.

More on this at Typographica.

By the way, I assume this ruler wasn't produced with type
that is rounded, but appears as such after the impression
was made. Nevertheless, I assume you'd like to emulate
what you see, so absolute correctness be damned!
